Full Description

In this handbook, the emergency physician-neurologist editorial team from the acclaimed comprehensive text Emergency Neurology bring its expertise to a readily accessible reference tool for the emergency department. With a symptom-based emphasis, the text, tables, and illustrations guide the emergency physician in the recognition, diagnosis, and management of neurological disorders both common and complex. Integrating fundamental neurological concepts with the practical realities and demands of emergency care, this handbook features management algorithms for dozens of conditions, and a list of 'pearls and pitfalls' at the conclusion of each of the 38 chapters. This survey of best practices in emergency neurology provides succinct and crucial clinical information for all emergency physicians who diagnose and manage neurologic disorders such as headache, seizure, and spinal cord injury. Emphasizing efficient neurological examination techniques, this is an essential handbook for emergency physicians, internists, and residents.
